Trivia

At one point Napoleon references Eaton's Department Store, a former Canadian chain, which probably hearkens back to the show's original concept of Solo being from Canada. See more »

Worst post-dubbing ever!
20 April 2006 | by LCShackleySee all my reviews

The "Neptune" episode contains some of the worst dialog dubbing I've seen in a long time. There must have been a legal or other problem with a particular word in the dialog. In acts 3 & 4, the word "hydro" is inserted several times INSTEAD of some other word ("freon," perhaps, judging by the lips). Robert Vaughan's corrected dialog sounds OK although it's obvious his lips aren't matching the word. But in John Banner's case, a TOTALLY DIFFERENT voice was thrown in just for one word in the sentence. You have to see it to believe how completely awful it is! (And it happens again later.) I wish someone could explain why this was done, and done so badly. (2010 NOTE: The "Man from UNCLE" handbook explains that the word WAS "freon," and the producers discovered that the name was owned by the company that made it. They couldn't get all the actors back for a post-dub session, so they had one actor dub them all.)
